  •  The so-called science of politics (0+ / 0-)

    This is the kind of stuff that pretends to be scientific and informative, but doesn't bear much weight, and only obtains consistently in rather ordinary circumstances in a well-established liberal democratic state. Such a political science thinks FDR, Churchill and Stalin are more or less irrelevant, not to mention Hitler, Mussolini, Franco or Salazar, or Lincoln, Washington, or Huey Long. And I imagine those Lincoln-Douglas debates were just some kind of side show that nobody paid much attention to—voters not being much interested in, you know, issues. Heaven help us.
